While you have total freedom to design your house however you please, many homeowners like to contemplate the effect any major renovation will have on their home’s value. That way, in the event that you do sell your house, you know you’ll be getting the best return on investment (ROI). With this in mind, when it comes to your bathroom, you might be leaning towards modern upgrades like tub-to-shower conversions. But can this upgrade devalue your home?
According to the National Association of Realtors, switching from a tub to a shower shouldn’t negatively impact resale value as long as you leave at least one tub in your home. If you’re considering replacing the only bathtub you have, though, then you might want to think twice. Consider:
Your Household Needs
If your family is in desperate need of a more convenient bathing option, a tub-to-shower conversion may make more sense. This is especially true if you have someone in your home that is getting older, has limited mobility, or could otherwise greatly benefit from a walk-in shower.
How Long You’ll Stay in Your Home
What are your selling plans? Is a move in the near future, or is it just a thought that might happen a long way down the road? Your needs may outweigh your home value if you’re going to be staying in your house for an extended amount of time.
